Presentation Transcript

Does OT treatment of visual skills improve functional outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?


Sensory integration
Sensory Integration outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?


Fine motor
Fine motor outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?


Vision therapy
Vision Therapy outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?


Vision therapy vt
Vision therapy (VT) outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Well supported by research

  • Role of behavioral optometrist

  • Role of occupational therapy

  • Collaboration

  • Outcomes


Evidence
Evidence outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • VT for oculomotor, accommodative, and binocular system disorders


Evidence1
Evidence outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • VT for oculomotor, accommodative, and binocular system disorders

  • VT for visual-motor integration


Evidence2
Evidence outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • VT for oculomotor, accommodative, and binocular system disorders

  • VT for visual-motor integration

  • OT/ OD collaboration in treating patients


Implications for consumers
Implications for Consumers outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

Occupational Therapy

  • Screen vision

  • Refer vision issues

  • Vision therapy under supervision of OD


Implications for consumers1
Implications for Consumers outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

Optometry

  • Refer handwriting, play skills, gross/fine motor coordination, psychosocial development, or sensory motor/sensory integration issues


Implications for ot practitioners
Implications for OT Practitioners outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes


Implications for ot practitioners1
Implications for OT Practitioners outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes

    • Work: reading, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc


Implications for ot practitioners2
Implications for OT Practitioners outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes

    • Work: reading, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc

    • Play: puzzles, drawing, sports,


Implications for ot practitioners3
Implications for OT Practitioners outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes

    • Work: reading, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc

    • Play: puzzles, drawing, sports,

    • Self-care: reduced frustration leading to more appropriate behavior


Implications for ot practitioners4
Implications for OT Practitioners outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Share observations about the child’s vision during functional tasks


Implications for ot practitioners5
Implications for OT Practitioners outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Share observations about the child’s vision during functional tasks

  • Encourage compliance with VT and glasses


Implications for researchers
Implications for Researchers outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Outcome studies investigating collaboration efforts are needed


Implications for researchers1
Implications for Researchers outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Outcome studies investigating collaboration efforts are needed

  • More rigorous studies of VT for visual motor integration


Best practice
Best Practice outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Build on the strengths of each profession


Best practice1
Best Practice outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?

  • Build on the strengths of each profession

  • Determine efficacy on a case-by case basis


Build collaboration
Build collaboration! outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?
